….“It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to…The feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.” – Vincent van Gogh
….“For me, a landscape does not exist in its own right, since its appearance changes at every moment; but the surrounding atmosphere brings it to life – the light and the air which vary continually. For me, it is only the surrounding atmosphere which gives subjects their true value.” Claude Monet
….”Painting from nature is not copying the object; it is realizing one’s sensations." Paul Cezanne

uuff!!! It is very difficult to find quotes from women artists!!!!

Congratulations Women Painters with featured artworks! This selection is made by me and Helene. Please join us in congratulating these talented artists.

Thanks so much for considering and including my beach scene for Puppy Love in with this fine collection. How wonderful.

There are plenty of works that I have not seen before in this group. I love so many. Great job Helene and Mada!

Congratulations everyone!

I have been browsing through your features almost as you have been adding them this morning! Lovely selections Madalena. I am now challenged to find some quotes from women artists!!!! I guess it was not a career option for us girls in those ‘good old days’ and in fact it was frowned upon. My husband’s Great Aunt was a very successful woman painter in the 20s and 30s, (Janet Cumbrae Stewart) and she used to sign her paintings ‘Cumbrae-Stewart’ so that viewers would think she was a man! Isn’t that sad? My interest in pastel was as a result of seeing her works hanging in the family home.

Sorry for the woffle! Thanks so much for including a couple of mine in this lovely collection.

Thank you so much to share your sister experience with us!
I have the same problem…I sign as Lobao-Tello so people think I am a man :)
May be you can do a post about your sister here in the group?
